Halliday Bay (1091) is a small, but growing, residential settlement and larger beachfront resort. It is accessible via a 4 km road off the Cape Hillsborough Road. The resort backs the northern half of this 500 m long, north-east facing beach, with a beachfront reserve running the length of the beach, a tidal pool located against the northern rocks (Fig. 3.7a) and a boat launching area in the southern corner, where there is also an amenities block. The beach receives waves averaging less than 0.5 m that maintain a moderately steep high tide beach, which grades into a 200 m wide, low gradient low tide beach. The beach is bordered by a 20 m high northern headland and 60 m high McBrides Point, that extends 500 m out from the southern end of the beach. Rocks fringe both ends of the beach, with a few mangroves growing on the southern rocks.
